Sir, c/o itching in whole body time to time daily Please refer my wife's (33 wks of pregnancy) LFT and urea/creatinine test. LFT-Total bilirubin-1.2 mg/dl, direct bilirubin-0.4 mg/dl, sgot-45 mg/dl, sgpt-53 mg/dl and BLOOD- urea-34 mg/dl creatinine-0.8 mg/dl medication: Tab Udiliv 300 mg tds syp alcasole 2 tsf tds vit c tab avil . But no relief so what to do next? Doctor has advised to take Cap Nitrofurantoin 100 mg 1 BD for 5 days, after seeing urine culture report which showed E.Coli infection, is it safe in pregnancy of 33 week?
